I would love to have been there but I was replacing my back door. Something I have been trying to do for months. Art, we missed you Saturday, hence no pictures of our steamup. We have a good turnout.......lots of steam and one sparky.

Ahaha!! LGB Repainted? Very nicely done. Now I take the time to look carefully I actually might have one of these cabeese. And yes, I had a look at the 101 on coal-firing, as well. the colour was excellent and mrs tac wants to know what birdies she could hear....

How's the paw, BTW?

Best wishes

PAW IS GETTING THERW. BIRDIES ARE OUR STATE BIRD, THE MOCKING BIRD. POSSIBLY A CARDINAL. THEY SEEM TO BE THERE IN NUMBERS WHEN WE ARE STEAMING.
AS FOR THE PAW, THERAPISTS TELLS ME I HAVE ABOUT EIGHT MORE WEEKS BEFORE I CAN DO ANY SERIOUS MANUAL STUFFWITH IT. I HOPE NOT BECAUSE I NEED TO BE DOING SOME STEAMIN MYSELF.

Art had to leave before I got my coal fired Flying Scotsman running. I ran an experment with a new and unknown type of coal. This was coal that is used at Zube Park in Houston for the big engines that run on the seven and a half inch gauge track. I just could not get a decent fire going with this coal. I could not find a way to set the controls to keep steam up with this coal. So --- I ended up dropping the fire and starting over with Welch coal and then got the engine running great. It was interesting to experment but it would have been more fun if the test had been a success. My shed has four burlap bags of the coal that was tested. Clearly, I will stick with Welch coal.

For Art ---
the quality of you videos just gets better and better!!!!

The last car in Bill's train is a standard LGB Drovers caboose. No paint job. It came in that color.
